The Arizona Fall Festival took over Arizona this weekend celebrating 15 years!

This event started with just 27 vendors at Duck and Decanter parking lot and now it has blossomed into a family-filled fun festival bringing local businesses together at Hance Park.

Alma April a volunteer at this Fall Festival spoke to Northeast Valley News more in-depth about what this festival is about.

“Well the first 500 people in line got free goodie bags filled with local deals but it’s mostly vendors selling and interacting, and having fun!” April commented.

Free goodie bags and dog-friendly space is a pass time you can expect when arriving to the event and over 200 vendors from favorite local businesses from around the valley.

Face paint was a favorite among the young ones and this space feat

ured a specific kid zone with activities and games.

This event also featured 3 stages with live cultural performances as well as local talent.

Northeast Valley News spoke to Salma Rodriguez an attendee at this event about her thoughts of the fall festival.

” This Fall Festival is great I love it! Also, it is such a great way to get everyone together and explore the different local businesses and get a little of everything” Rodriguez commented.

Different local wineries and breweries were featured for the 21+ area where everyone received a complimentary wine glass.
